The Haverford women’s basketball team was unable to pull off an upset at Swarthmore’s Tarbell Pavilion Saturday night.

Midway through the first half, Swarthmore was clinging to a tenuous 1 point lead. However, the Garnet proceeded to go on a 9-2 run to end the first half and shifting the momentum towards Swat.

The second period opened with a modest run by Haverford, but the Fords could not produce much more offense against a stifling Swarthmore defense. Haverford turned the ball over on numerous occasions, failed to convert free throws, and seemed overmatched in the paint.

Frosh Erin McCartney (8 pts) provided some needed offense midway through the second half, and Sarah Chamovitz’s big three with 3:30 left trimmed Swat’s lead to seven at 49-42. Yet Haverford simply did not have an answer for Swat’s Heather Kile, whose 19 points and 15 rebounds were both game-highs. Kile entered the game averaging 18.9 points and 13.7 rebounds per game, and she dominated the second half.

Senior Sarah Hanck paced the team with 12 points in her final game for Haverford. Chamoviiz, the Fords’ leading scorer and rebounder, only managed nine points in limited playing time.

The final score, 57-44, was more than respectable, especially considering that Swarthmore will be heading to the Centennial Conference playoffs with a 9-4 conference record. The Fords finished their season at 8-15, 4-8 in the conference.
